Mel B Walks Off 'America's Got Talent' Stage After Simon Cowell Makes Insensitive Joke

UPDATE: Mel B. has just spoken out about the moment she walked off set and what triggered her.

Mel B walked off the stage during the middle of America’s Got Talent‘s live show on Tuesday (August 22) after fellow judge Simon Cowell made an insensitive joke.

After one of the contestants had a technical error during his performance, Simon was asked his opinion of what could have gone wrong.

“I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B‘s wedding night. A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery,” he said.

In the middle of Simon saying this, Mel grabbed her cup of water and tossed it at her fellow judge. She then walked off the stage.

Mel, who is going through a messy divorce with estranged husband Stephen Belafonte, returned to the stage for the next performance.

    Simon Cowell is an ass.

  • namers

    Just nasty.

  • HG

    Wow. How disrespectful. Isn’t she divorcing a man who constantly abused her? And it’s not like he is the ideal marriage man either… He’s the one that had an affair and baby with his best friend’s partner.

  • rosaryblue

    That was a low blow. The woman is going through a messy divorce from an abusive monster and Simon makes jokes? He slept with his best friend’s wife and had a baby with her. They conducted their affair on his best friend’s yacht while the best friend was ON THE BOAT with them. Simon has no room for comment.

  • Shell

    That’s him all over though. He papers over the shitty things he has done over the years while making sure he reminds everyone else about theirs. He’s always been a fake ass hole and the whole ‘Nasty Simon’ gimmick is just laughable now yet he still tries to play off it. He’s lucky Mel has calmed down over the years. If it had been during her Scary phase, she would have punched him square in the jaw.

    its not an f-ing ‘joke’. stop calling someone being an asshole a ‘joke’. it wasn’t funny, it was just to be hurtful. calling it a joke is just to minimise and justify his behaviour

  • KlingOn2K

    It’s all a setup to get free publicity for the show.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Ratings must be low.. these celebs will say/do anything to make themselves relevant.

    Simon is an asshole. However, it does sound like he was trying to diss her soon to be ex husband’s performance skills in the sack, but completely missed the mark. Her ex is a sensitive subject for her, it should’ve been off limits.

  • Shugie

    She’s fired! Probably not a good idea to throw a drink at your boss!
